Hughes: I’m happy to score against Rewa

Hughes broke the hearts of many Rewa fans when he blasted a shot past Rewa goalkeeper Benito Waqavou in the 20th minute of play.
The Dreketi native from Macuata was happy to score against his former district.
“I’m happy to score a winning goal against my former team,” he said.
“When I received the ball I told myself that I need to finish this off and help my team win. I was not at all double-minded. We had been working really hard to win this year’s Fiji FACT title and so far we are on target.”
He played for Suva while his brother Bruce Hughes played for Rewa.
“I had a great time playing against my brother and I think we both enjoyed the match. I dedicate this goal to all the fans who have been supporting us.”
Suva coach Gurjit Singh said he was anticipating a tough match.
“After a long time we have beaten Rewa in the semi-final and It was a good team effort,” he said.
Rewa coach Marika Rodu said they played really well but it was not their day.
“We missed a lot of opportunities but I think luck was not our side but I’m happy with the performance of my boys.”
